Rallying the troops
I was reading a post earlier and one of the members replied and said that flooding congressmen and women wasn't the answer to getting internet poker legalized in the states. He offered an alternative suggestion of rallying the constituents. I agree that we should rally the troops, but I disagree that flooding our respective representatives with emails is useless, or is "not the answer."
I believe we should be doing both. It seems that there are too few poker players trying to fight for our right on this issue. We should definitely be pulling together and making strides as a group, but we should also bug the heck out of our representatives.
I'm open to ideas and suggestions, and I'd be open to leading a petition process. I feel like it's our responsibility to raise our children, not the government's. The leading argument against internet poker is that it's too accessible to minors. This is complete garbage. So Washington doesn't care that HBO and Skinamax shows filth after hours for free and for every child to stumble upon, and they don't care that porn is easier than ever to freely access online (and I'm not talking softcore. You guys know what I mean), but internet poker is crossing the line?! Give me a break.
I appreciate any replies.
Good gaming guys!
